f you goto the vivaladi page, and look up its helpers, it gives a 
loooooong curl command to fetch them, but pasted into bash shell and 
return is pressed, you wind up with zero action and an empty prompt. A 
ctl+c gets you back your normal prompt. But thats all experimental any 
way since dpkg outputs quite a string of its own dependencies not met:

So its not going to work on a 32 bit wheezy, ever. I'll update this 
machine to a 64 bit stretch if and when the network works again. Armbian 
is now working on a rock64, but thats the only variety of nix for arm64 
that will accept and use a gateway statement in its net config and it 
took me a week to make that work. I put another drive in an older dell 
dimension and installed 64 bit stretch, but was never able to get it to 
accept a gateway statement. No errors, it just ignores it unless applied 
by hand using route. So its back on the old wheezy drive which Just 
Works(TM)  That machine isn't quite sacrificial as its the box I use to 
program the mesa fpga based CNC cards, so its needed eventually. Its 
actually got a parport! And them is scarce on new machines today. :(

Thanks Curt.
